Band Of Brothers Book

Books shelved as band-of-brothers: Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters by Dick Winters, Band of Brothers: E Company, th. Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose - Stephen E. Ambrose's iconic New York Times bestseller about the ordinary men who became the World War II's most. Band of Brothers is an absorbing, compelling, and even stunning book This may be as close as any reader will wish to come to war without.

And at its peak—in Holland and the Ardennes—Easy Company was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From the rigorous training in Georgia in to the disbanding in , Stephen E. Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. In combat, the reward for a job well done is the next tough assignment, and as they advanced through Europe, the men of Easy kept getting the tough assignments. They parachuted into France early D-Day morning and knocked out a battery of four mm cannon looking down Utah Beach; they parachuted into Holland during the Arnhem campaign; they were the Battered Bastards of the Bastion of Bastogne, brought in to hold the line, although surrounded, in the Battle of the Bulge; and then they spearheaded the counteroffensive. They were rough-and-ready guys, battered by the Depression, mistrustful and suspicious. They drank too much French wine, looted too many German cameras and watches, and fought too often with other GIs. But in training and combat they learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew. They discovered that in war, men who loved life would give their lives for them.

Tim Bolduc Great book!

Band of Brothers

The unabridged is the best version. Dick Winters book is great too! Connie I really dislike 'abridged' books, they always seems choppy to me, and I feel like I've missed something. To hear more about the development of characters of this Band of Brothers, would have been a good thing. However the book was a good reminder of what our men endured during this war. Bruce Curson I hate abridged versions but this was all that was available There is no doubt that the story and characters would have been much more developed for the listener if the whole book wasn't crammed into 5 CD's.

In this "abridged review", I admit that I got the jist of the story and am sure this version did not give the Mr. Ambrose's full work its due justice. Anthony Fascinating and riveting.

A terrific story, well researched and well read.

Band of Brothers

I foolishly listened to the abridged version, and it seemed too short. Highly recommended, but savor the unabridged version.

Anonymous Highly recommended! Well written and researched this book tells a story everone who didn't live through World War Two should read. Ambrose effectively and movingly tells the stories of true American hereoes.

Janice Church Dramatic - difficult to stop listening. Some things never change. Glad that Easy Company at least got some of Hitler's silverware -- small reward for so much death and suffering.

I highly recommend if you want to experience firsthand like it really was for Easy Company.
